Pair Skytrak With Your iPad
You can pair SkyTrak with your iPad in two ways:
Via a direct Wi-Fi connection OR
Through your home network
Direct Wi-Fi Connection
Follow the instructions in the
SkyTrak software application
to pair your iPad directly to
SkyTrak’s via its Wi-Fi signal.
Your iPad will NOT have an
internet connection when
connected in this manner.
Network Connection (recommended)
SkyTrak can use your wireless
(Wi-Fi) home network to pair
with your iPad by connecting to
your wireless network router,
just like your computer and
mobile devices do. SkyTrak
will communicate with the
software on your iPad through your router. Plus, you will
retain access to the internet on your iPad.
SETUP TIP:Follow the Wi-Fi configuration steps in the SkyTrak software to select your desired connection mode. To make changes to your connection, access the Connection Wizard near the bottom of the main dashboard of the SkyTrak software at any time.

3. To turn off SkyTrak, press the Power button again.
Charging Your SkyTrak
SkyTrak contains a Lithium-polymer rechargeable battery that can operate up
to 5 hours on a full charge.
1. Charge SkyTrak for 6 hours prior to initial use (NOTE: to charge, SkyTrak
must be turned OFF).
2. Plug the USB cable into the USB port of a computer that is powered on or use a compatible, SkyTrak-supplied USB wall charger to charge SkyTrak.
3. The Power LED will turn AMBER when SkyTrak is charging.
Setting Up Your Space for SkyTrak
Before playing with SkyTrak the first time, be sure to remove the protective film
from its optics lens and to fully charge its battery.
To reduce the risk of injury or property damage, it is recommended that the
SkyTrak system be set up using the guidelines below. Please ensure that you
have created enough space around you to safely play with SkyTrak and that
you heed all applicable safety precautions at all times.
SETUP TIP: For optimum performance, it is recommended that you use a
hitting mat for both indoor and outdoor use.
Minimum Unobstructed
Area Dimensions
Ceiling height: Safe ceiling height varies and depends on your physical
height and the length of your club.
10 feet (3,35m)
10 feet (3,35m)
CAUTION: Always use a safety net and a hitting mat specifically designed for golf
if the hitting area or the ball flight area is restricted such as indoors or in the back yard of a residence.
Placement of Your Golf Ball
Make sure SkyTrak is raised
level with the hitting surface.
Place SkyTrak parallel to
your intended line of play. Depending on your set up, this may mean your target is not the center of the net.
Once SkyTrak is properly
connected to the app on
your mobile device, it
will display a red laser
dot on your hitting
surface. Place a clean,
white golf ball on the
red dot.
Place ball

SETUP TIP: For optimum spin results, place the ball on the laser dot with
some kind of marking on the golf ball, such as its brand logo,
facing toward SkyTrak’s lens prior to hitting.
Helpful Tips & Care Instructions
SkyTrak uses advanced optics that are located behind its lens. Scratches and dust or other issues that impact the lens quality may interfere with
SkyTrak’s operation. Keeping the lens clean and scratch-free will ensure
the measurement accuracy and longevity of your SkyTrak system.
Use a clean, damp cotton cloth to clean the lens in a single wipe. Do not
use any chemicals to clean the lens.
Carrying cases to keep your SkyTrak protected and other accessories are available for purchase at www.skytrakgolf.com
Never disconnect or turn off your SkyTrak while it is syncing. Wait until it
is finished communicating before you disconnect it, power it off, or power off your mobile device.
Don’t expose your SkyTrak to extreme temperatures. Hot or cold
conditions may affect performance.
Don’t allow your SkyTrak to get wet.
Don’t drop your SkyTrak, or hit your SkyTrak with your golf club or golf ball.
Compatibility of your SkyTrak device with mobile devices, like tablet computers, varies by mobile device and its operating system and
display capabilities, which change often and are outside the control of SkyTrak. Not all mobile devices are compatible with your SkyTrak device. To view a list of currently compatible devices, go to www.skytrakgolf.com
Fully charge the battery prior to playing with your SkyTrak.
